reverse an axis
Posted:

Is it possible to reverse an axis. I am doing some work with ListContourPlot and I would like for my xaxis to display from say 14 to 5 (from left to right across the screen), while the yaxis goes from say 2 to 9. I have tried calculating my data matrix "backwards" in the x direction, and using MeshRange>{{14,5},{2,9}}; this does not work (the data is now "backwards" but the xaxis still displays from 5 to 14). I have consulted Wolfram's book, Tom WickhamJones' book on Mathematica Graphics, and Backman & Smith's book on a Guide to Mathematica Graphics without success. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks for your help. John C. Erb
